Stage one of the Tour de France will be entering Ripon on Palace Road, before turning on to the A6108 North Road at the Clock tower..
Our house is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Ripon which has a beautiful cathedral. Ripon has a number of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Three museums: the Workhouse, the Courthouse and the Prison give fantastic insights into life in Ripon in the 18th and 19th century. The Curzon, a London based Arts Cinema, opened recently and shows live opera, ballet, National Theatre and RSC links as well as current films.
Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage Site, is a five minute drive away but can easily be walked to in 30 minutes.
Newby Hall, a large country house with beautiful gardens, is also located just outside Ripon.
Our house is in an ideal location to access the Yorkshire Dales as well as the North York Moors.
We have Wi-Fi access and parking is available
I stayed with Lisa for just one night. Her house is immaculate and has a lot of character. It is in a quiet road but only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Ripon. Communications were good regarding arrival time and Alan was kind enough to get up early on Sunday morning to get me breakfast. A really nice stay with lovely, friendly people.
This was a lovely place to stay and Lisa was a great host. They made us fantastic breakfasts and the house was really beautiful. We particularly enjoyed all her paintings and the location was close for walking into Ripon. They were really helpful for the duration of our stay, offering advice on how to get to places and even an umbrella when the weather caught us out! If we were back in the area then we would definitely choose to stay here again to explore more of Yorkshire.
Lisa's home was the nicest and cleanest place we stayed on our two-week vacation. Breakfast was sensational as well. My only regret was that we couldn't have visited longer! I will definitely recommend Lisa to anyone staying in North Yorkshire.
We cannot recommend Lisa enough for the quality of her home, personality and company. The room was fantastic as was every aspect of our stay including the delicious breakfast we enjoyed outside in the sunshine. Do not think twice this is an excellent location, superb friendly atmosphere; we will definitely return without hesitation when next in the area. Thanks again Lisa :-)
